John and Patsy gave us so much support, friendship, and love while pastoring at Tishomingo Chapel. We shared joy and heartaches and so much laughter. John had an extraordinary sensitivity to what God's spirit wanted. He truly was a partner in my ministry. We didn't spend the time with him and Patsy that we should have these past years. For that we are truly sorry.

Patsy we love you. Thank you for your love and friendship. We know you have lost a part of yourself. Our hearts are breaking for you and the family. John Aaron and Jason, we love you too. Your Dad was one of a kind and we were blessed to be his friend. You are in our hearts and prayers.
